Taiye Idahor will speak about how physical and mental space impacts her work, including her installation on view as part of CCA Lagos at ISCP.
Idahor grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. Her work deals with concepts of female identity, with “hair” as a recurring theme. She is interested in issues of trade, beauty, the environment and globalization in relation to present-day Africa.
